Hello there, I am a relatively new owner here with a 2011 Kawasaki Versys 650. I purchased used and the bike came with a slip on Arrow exhaust with the baffle removed. The original owner misplaced the stock exhaust and baffle for the arrow
I do not dislike the sound of the arrow exhaust, but, call me old or a wimp, I would prefer it quieter. I have always liked quieter bikes. I like the looks, positioning and weight of it as well, but if the seller had included the stock I probably would have switched back by now.
All this leads to my question. What can I do to quiet the exhaust without dropping a lot of money on a completely new exhaust, or causing issues with the bike? A tiny amount of performance drop is negligible, but causing a stalling issue, etc. is not.
Buying a baffle to insert is currently my idea. I also have a custom exhaust fabricator in the area that may be able to make something for an unkown price. I do not know how much of a difference having a baffle in would be. Price I'm willing to spend would go up to the cost of a stock exhaust if I could find one, but I would rather silence the arrow than put that thing back on the bike, let alone paying extra for the privilege.
Thank you for any help.
